Hi, I’m Liv!

My practicum experience at Alli was one full of ongoing support, encouragement, and community connection.

During practicum, I was able to get the direct and indirect hours I needed to graduate on time, and got to work with different presenting issues that broadened my skill set. Being welcomed into such an inclusive and warm team made my practicum experience one that I continue to be grateful for.

Hi, I’m Mark!

I could not be more grateful to Alli for the opportunity they have given me. It is a fabulous practicum placement because of the wide variety of clients and cases.

My colleagues are second to none and the staff could not be more welcoming and encouraging. I would choose Alli for my practicum again in a hear beat.

Hi, I’m Kemelle!

I completed the MACP program at Yorkville University and Alli exceeded the practicum requirements of the school.

The supervision was supportive for my skill level as well as encouraging for where I wanted to be! One thing that Alli does really well is create a sense of community and alliance among the professionals here. We share resources, encouragement, and laughs often!

Hi, I’m Asha!

My practicum with Alli has been more than I could have hoped for.

The team are all deeply supportive of my learning process. Not only have I been able to hone my skills as a therapist with a full client load, I have been able to participate in a number of projects that have prepared me for the work I will do as a therapist outside of sessions.

Hi, I’m Jessie!

My practicum at Alli therapy allowed me to develop my skills and build my confidence as a therapist.

I had the opportunity to conduct group, couples, and individual sessions with the support and feedback from my supervisor and peers. Supervision offers an incredible opportunity to learn new techniques and therapeutic modalities that aided my ability to grow and discover my personal style as a therapist.

Through the work, I was able to discover my ideal client while supporting the work from intake, session planning and termination. This experience makes me confident that I could establish a private practice or work within any mental health organization.
